Can I make a no win no fee compensation claim?
Our team handle medical negligence claims on a no-win-no-fee basis, removing the risk from claiming compensation, and leaving you free to concentrate on your claim without worrying about raising funds in order to pay legal fees.
Although the term ‘no-win-no fee’ can conjure up an image of daytime TV adverts, and lawyers and claimants who are both looking for a way to make some quick cash, the origin of the no-win-no-fee medical negligence claim has its roots in government policy.
What is no-win-no-fee?
Compensation cases where the plaintiff was unable to pay for their own solicitor were historically funded with Legal Aid. But in 1998, the Government realised this was costing the taxpayer a lot of money, and replaced the policy with a ‘conditional fee system’ – effectively meaning that in cases where the claimant didn’t win their case, they weren’t expected to pay any fees.
This means that now, anyone who wishes to make a claim has access to legal representation, no matter whether they can afford to pay for it upfront or not. It also means that solicitors need to be confident a case has a good chance of winning before they agree to take it on – as they risk not receiving payment for work on a case that doesn’t result in any compensation being awarded to their client.
What are the benefits of no-win-no-fee?
The ‘conditional fee system’ (or no-win-no-fee claims) ensures anyone who feels they have been treated unfairly or negligently by a medical professional has the opportunity to start a compensation claim – even if they don’t have any money to spend on legal advice.
Medical negligence claims are notoriously hard to prove, and if you’ve suffered injury, pain, inconvenience, and/or loss of earnings as the consequence of ill-treatment by a doctor, nurse or other medical professional, you shouldn’t have to worry about being left with a hefty legal bill in the event that your claim is unsuccessful.
No-win-no-fee means you won’t have to pay any money in advance to benefit from the legal services of our team. All our help, advice and experience will be provided to you free of charge, as will any work we do on your case.
If you do unfortunately lose your compensation claim, there’s nothing for you to pay – but if you are successful, we will charge an industry-standard fee that amounts to 20% of the total compensation you receive.
Medical negligence cases can be long, complex and time consuming. This means it’s critical that you obtain the best possible legal advice, from our qualified panel of experts. Using no-win-no-fee to fund your claim ensures that money doesn’t prevent justice from being done, and means that our team only takes on cases we honestly feel we can win on your behalf.
